Neither Asus nor Kingston specifically recommends their use pairing.


The Kingston HyperX line is designed to provide extreme performance and be overclockable. I don't think I'll be overclocking the memory though.

The blu line is the entry level of three HyperX levels, and comes in speeds of 1333 @ 1.5V

and 1600@1.65V.

I will probably not run the voltage higher than 1.5 though. I think the 1600 might revert to 1333 at 1.5V.
 
Kingston makes the most compatible RAM sticks I have ever come across, my boards are are all Asus and MSI ones and the RAMs have always been Kingston.
Looking at the P8Z68-V_Series_DRAM_QVL it seems quiet a few of those HyperBlu models are mentioned there.
So the one you choose will work most probably on that board without a hitch.
